Four Seasons Resort, Seychelles

Seychelles, Indian Ocean

The hotel

Comprising of tree-house villas, each with their own private infinity pool, perched on a jungled hillside, the Four Seasons Resort Seychelles offers a tantalising glimpse into paradise. The powder-sand beach, considered to be one of the finest on the island, is just a short stroll away, scented en-route by cinnamon trees and frangipani. As well as indulging in water sports, there’s a lovely swimming pool to relax by with poolside dining and refreshments readily available. The spa is a treat for all, located at the top of the hill, overlooking spectacular Petite Anse, with both adults and children welcome. Utilising entirely natural ingredients, signature rituals include chakra rebalancing and jet-lag recovery (adults only), as well as a Fancy Fingers Manicure or a Sleepy-time massage for youngsters, the latter a wise investment as everyone enjoys a peaceful night! As dusk falls, head to Zez Lounge for a pre-dinner cocktail or two. Afterwards, opt for pan-Asian cuisine at Zez Restaurant, set on the hillside and perfect for making the most of those sunsets, or Kannel, set right beside the ocean and serving sumptuous seafood, Creole and Asian cuisine.

Our second stay. Great people drive this hotel. Restaurant staff, the beach guys, the buggy guys, so good. Thank you and WELL DONE. Just one negative, buzzsaws making a noise. Inevitable to manage this resort. Irritating! However when we complained they dealt with it.

Wonderful holiday! Me, my wife and two daughters (6 and 3) spent 4 days in this excellent hotel. The villas are amazing and the kids loved it to be able to swim almost 24/7 :) The beach is very nice with many activities to do. For kids an excellent option is the kids club where they have a daily plan full of indoor and outdoor activities.

With my boyfriend we wanted to have a drink in the hotel bar. We do it very often in Paris and in many places we are visiting. For the first time in our life, they refused to serve us at the bar. However, the worst part is that the security let us enter and didn’t tell us that the bar is 20 minutes walking from the entry. Arriving at the lobby… Read more
With my boyfriend we wanted to have a drink in the hotel bar. We do it very often in Paris and in many places we are visiting. For the first time in our life, they refused to serve us at the bar. However, the worst part is that the security let us enter and didn’t tell us that the bar is 20 minutes walking from the entry. Arriving at the lobby they indicated us the bar and didn’t say that there would be any issue. Finally, arriving at the bar, they said that they don’t serve people from outside. It was very unkind, especially after 20 minutes of walk. The worst experience ever. After this experience we will never stay at any of the Four Seasons Hotels. There are so many luxurious hotels that don’t treat this way its potential clients. They have many things to learn. Shame on this group. Read less

Staying at this breathtaking property is an forgettable experience. Best experience ever. The staff at all levels are so well trained, so courteous, they know how to please a client and how make their guest feel so special from beginning to end. The villa with the pool was heavenly, with breathtaking scenic views, nestled in a stunning rainforest. Top of the line beddings, bed linens, towels and fixtures, beautiful tasteful decor. Most comfy bed. It was so nice waking up to the breathtaking view of sunrise and watching the sunset. We enjoyed swimming in our private pool. We felt so pampered and were made to feel so special from beginning to end. The service at the pool and beach is impeccable. They attend to you moment you step in. The spa offered top quality massage with professional masseuses that you would wish it goes on forever. Their Michelin Star chef Andrea was amazing. He personally took charge of personally preparing our tasty dinners at Kannelle for two days in a row, each time the meal (seafood) was more scrumptious than the other. The breakfast choices were healthy, excellent, the staff try to oblige and keep you happy at all times, despite being super busy for the Easter vacation, all are very pleasant and helpful. Mohammed Gamal the manager or maître d’ at Kannelle was amazing. He bent backwards and forwards to ensure that we are happy and every request is met with efficiency. We enjoyed the Pan Asian night and Creole nights, high quality buffet, with a huge variety of foods, tasting out of this world and high quality choices. I definitely recommend this place. I will definitely return if ever back in Seychelles. It is pricey because we visited this place at a high season. In the future, we will try to book in any Four Seasons well ahead in advance to secure a ‘cheaper’ deal, but it was worth every penny to me despite the large amount of money we paid. No regrets Read less

After staying at FS Landaa Giraavaru, FS Kuda Huraa and FS Koh Samui, we were looking very much forward to FS Seychelles. After the first couples of days, we were a bit disappointed with inconsistency service, especially in the bar near the beach. No attention given, orders were forgotten, lack of cleaning etc. However, this was soon to be forgotten by a much better service in the resort elsewhere, and at least by the stunning location, the beautiful villa and very, very good food! Let me add that the beds are extremely comfortable. Slept like a child. The chat function on the FS app was very helpful, strongly recommend using this. Suggestions to the resort would be to train staff at the beach bar a bit better, more buggies available in "rush hour" and get dedicates butlers dressed not so similar to other staff. Finally, i would like to thank David (buggy-driver) and Kevin (beach-staff) for excellent service. You are both stars! Read less
